Sikaflex Construction+

Flexible Building Construction Sealant


The Universal Construction Sealant

Sikaflex Construction+

Joint dimensions and shapes in facades are subject to changes due to thermal expansion and
contraction of the building units. The corresponding movements must be accommodated by the
sealant in order to protect the inner parts of the building against environmental influences. The
movements are either due to the size of the single building units (e. g. pre-cast concrete ele-
ments) or the thermal expansion coefficient of different building materials and temperature
variations. Additionally, structural movements may play a role as well.
Sikas flexible and long lasting sealants are able to absorb these movements and therefore
ensure tight and durable joints.

Sikaflex Construction+ is a 1-part, moisture curing, elastic joint sealant suitable for
movement joints and connection joints in:
Concrete facades
Masonry facades
Parapets of balconies and galleries
Concrete walls and for window installation as well as many other constructions
